IBF Future Skills Connect : Unleash the Data Jedi in You!

Data Science for Managers

22 Aug 2019

IBF is pleased to bring you this Future Skills workshop on Data Analytics together with HyperIsland.

Data analysis is the backbone of any business in the new digital era. An analyst must be equipped to understand, identify and present statistics and knowledge based in all business areas as this supports the decision making process.

The role of a data scientist extends beyond reporting on what has been done and how things are being used. The key is to be able to predict the future and as best possible solve problems before they arise. 90% of the worlds data has been created in the recent few years - but few can use it to its full potential and harness the power of the data being mined for the greatest business impact.

What do managers working with data science need to know?
1. What are the available data sources and how to qualify them for relevance
2. What a database is and what are the different kinds of databases available
3. What is Extract, Transform and Load
4. Fundamentals of data visualization
5. Interrogating any data visualisation/ dashboards with questions relevant to the business challenges (cases/discussions where appropriate)

In this workshop, you will learn not only to understand, digest and play around with all this information, but also how to communicate it to the rest of your organisation or the world. This 3-hour workshop is designed to engage with specific nuances on data analysis and inspire you to move beyond visualization into predictive analysis.

Learning outcomes
1. Guided to building a database that is relevant for a given business challenge
2. Experiential/ hands on understanding of Extract, Transform and Load

4. Building a playbook of interrogations for a dashboard
